Here come some statistics, Apple is still the leader in Tablet Market; capturing 68.2% of the tablet market. According to IDC, a total of 25 million tablet shipped on the second quarter of 2012 (2Q12) which is up from 18.7 million from the first quarter of 2012 and 68.2% of those tablet has an Apple logo at the back and the reported 17 million ipads sold by Apple certainly helped. At 2nd is Samsung with 7.3% of the market then followed by Amazon, Acer and Asus which are 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively.
What’s surprising (or not surprising) is the rate that Samsung and Asus is growing. Samsung and Asus tablet businesses are registering a growth rate of 117.6% and 115.5% respectively. Things may change one the numbers from Nexus 7 comes in and when Microsoft finally releases the Surface.
